A depression formed in the Mercier Bridge on Saturday, forcing the closure of the roadway heading towards the South Shoure.

A road crew was brought in to place a steel plate over the depression. The bridge was re-opened just before noon. 

The bridge was initially scheduled for a partial closure that was to last from 10:00 p.m. on Friday to 5:00 a.m. on Monday. That closure would have seen one lane open in each direction.
